The dark ruby/purple-colored 1996 Barolo Le Vigne is an elegant, large-scaled Barolo with everything in balance. There is sweet tannin, and a measured yet powerful, rich style with copious amounts of black fruits intermixed with minerals, spice, and dried herbs. The wine is tight, and in need of 3-4 years of cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2018. A Marc de Grazia Selection, various American importers, including Michael Skurnik, Syosset, NY; tel.
